In last week’s issue, a story was published on the State’s Attorney campaign between Joel Todd and Beau Oglesby.
A small part of the article touched on a Facebook page titled, “Crime Victims to Re-elect Joel Todd.” In the article, Oglesby questioned the site as a campaign tactic for Todd’s re-election bid and alleges Todd solicited comments from crime victims for political gain. Though Todd denied having anything to do with the page, there were questions raised as to why the newspaper did not print who created the page.
In fact, Lynn Dodenhoff, the mother of Christine Sheddy, who was allegedly murdered in Worcester County, started the social network page, and she adamantly confirmed this week Todd had nothing to do with its creation or the information contained on it. She said it was her idea to start the page and she continues to monitor it daily.
We regret any confusion.
